This is Eric Merkley himself, usually it is my mother who creates all these posts, but I have had a lot of people ask me if I will continue on with the blog. I figured after a long time of me hearing about the blog, I would finally make a post myself.
As you all know I have recently returned home for my mission. It was the best experience that I could ever dream of. I have grown so much in my understanding and personal relationship with my Savior Jesus Christ. I have come to love a people that I didn't even know existed, but I can now call them my family.Words will simply never be able to describe what I feel about my mission, it is such a huge part of me and I think about it everyday, I hope that I will for the rest of my life. I feel like I found a piece to the puzzle of why I had cancer, and that was so I would serve a mission.
Being back home has been BUSY!!! people ask me how the adjustment has been but really I have been to busy to sit down and think about it. . . . so great!! I am currently attending UVU where I plan to get my Associates Degree and transfer up to the U to finish a Bachelors in Health Care Administration. Then continue on with a Masters wherever the lord takes me. My goal is to eventually be a CEO of a Hospital. I am also working at the MTC teaching Lao, one of my mission languages and I love it. I get to teach the next generation of missionaries which truly is a blessing. Besides teaching at the MTC, I also teach mission prep in my stake, one of my 3 callings currently. so it is like I never come home really. Then you add that I am on LDSSA (student council for UVU institute) I am just at home with myself and the lord. Now I know what you are thinking and the answer is NO, I am not dating anyone right now. Don't get me wrong I am TRYING, but I just need to find a women who will put up with me first :)
I truly want to thank you for your support over the years, I can not begin to explain the love and prayers that have been felt for me and my family, especially my mother. I feel like she needed them for more me haha :) who knows what will happen to this blog, maybe when I do find that special lady we will turn it into our family blog. . . . . in other words she can do it :) I am on Facebook as Eric Merkley and Instagram as emerk05 feel free to follow because honestly that will probably keep you up to date better then this blog.
I love you all.
